Daniel Jacobs Shows Significant Decline Against Mosley Jr

Two-time middleweight champion Daniel “Miracle Man” Jacobs’ (37-5, 30KO) one-sided defeat to Shane Mosley Jr. (22-4, 12KO) is a clear sign he needs to hang up the gloves.

After a two-year hiatus, the Miracle Man wanted to make a comeback. He even went back to his old roots by rejoining forces with old trainer Andre Rozier. The opponent they chose to make a return against was top-rated middleweight contender Mosley Jr.

In addition, their fight would take place in the super middleweight limit. Rozier felt this played in favor of his fighter and that it was a good litmus test for the aging two-time champion.


On July 6, Jacobs fought like a man who succumbed to Father Time. He failed to mount any kind of offense and was repeatedly beaten to the punch. In the end, two judges scored it 99-91 and one had it 100-90 in favor of Mosley Jr.

Many inside the boxing community view this as Jacobs’ third loss in a row, as fans believe he lost to Gabriel Rosado in 2020. Following the previously mentioned victory, he took a long layoff before returning only to be defeated by John Ryder in 2022.

Boxing fans felt it was time to leave the sport following the Ryder defeat. The Mosley loss was worse than the previous fights because Jacobs looked like a shell of himself. There is nothing left in the tank of the 37-year-old from Brooklyn.

It’s tough for fighters to realize their time is over as that competitive spirit still burns inside them. However, their body always tells the truth once they are inside the ring. Hopefully, Rozier sat down Jacobs and told him the truth – that the time to retire is now.
